"Back off, man. I'm a scientist." Peter Venkman

Played By: Bill Murray
Film: Ghostbusters

Why He's On The List: Empire's Nick De Semlyen summed up Peter Venkman - the leader of the Ghostbusters and Bill Murray's finest character - perfectly in this month's magazine when he said that Venkman is the ultimate New York hero: cynical, sarcastic, secretly sweet-natured. From his relentless and devilishly charming attempts to hit on Sigourney Weaver's Dana to his aversion to anything resembling work, Venkman is the template for virtually every character Vince Vaughn has ever played.

Finest Hour: Venkman works his powers of persuasion on the Mayor Of New York - and the Ghostbusters are back in business.
